-m.ATHE.)ATI'CS STILL GROWING.
Professor J. L .Mackley Says Many
Problems Remain to be
Solved.
"Many people think that mathe-
matics is a complete subject, but on
the contrary a great many problems
are yet to be solved," said Prof. J. L.
Markley yesterday afternoon in his
lecture on "Sixes and Sevens." "We
are not satisfied to say that it is a
deep subject, and supply that myster-
ious phase, which some people give
it, but in addition to this, we might
call it a vigorous growing subject."
Professor Markley gave a history of
the development of mathematics from
the time of the ancient Greeks and
Hindus to the present date, laying
special emphasis upon the import-
ance of the discovery of "The Alge-
braic Solution" by Cardau in 1579.
Illustrations were used in the form
of quadratic equations.
In 1882 mathematicians found no
end of trouble in an attempt to solve
the actual value of pi. (7r.) In later
days another attempt proved just as
successful inasmuch as it actually
worked out to 770 decimal places with
a remainder. An amusing incident
was told at this point concerning the
senate of the state of Illinois which
attempted to pass a bill to ascertain
the actual value of pi. (7r.) This was
passed off as a joke, but whether it
showed the ignorance of that body
regarding the subject at hand, we
are in no position to judge.
HAPPY FRED LAWTON DROPS,
INTO TOWN AND SAYS HELLO .
The town is looking a lot brighter
today since the ever-cheerful Fred
Lawton, '10, dropped in on business.
He is as bashful as usual, and when
asked to write his own squib refused
to do so. "There ain't going to be no
squib," said he. The gentleman is in
error,
At present, he is located in Detroit
helping erring youngsters on the way
to righteousness, backed by the auth-
ority of the juvenile court of that city.
He came out to Ann Arbor with one
of his charges whom he placed in the
psychopathic ward of the university
hospital.
